The story behind the song:-
Too Far Away
This song like many was written in an airplane, this time travelling from Brisbane to Adelaide. The flight path often goes right over my old stamping ground of the Sunraysia district on the Murray River in northern Victoria, Australia. But this day was very cloudy and as we headed south-west I was unable to see anything below that indicated where we might be. Briefly through a break in the clouds I saw a small town but could not identify it as somewhere I knew. My chances of finding the Murray River and my hometown of Robinvale were dissappearing fast as it got darker and hence the song just started playing in my head. Of course there was always a pen and paper handy when flying for just such a circumstance and it didn't take long to finish a substantial portion of the song I finished up with.
The cover is a photo of the farm I grew up on. I have no regrets of leaving, but I love to go back now and again. LAS
